somebody explained me….
10) time zone of Hungary was 4 seconds behind the european time zone…. plus a clock can fall back.
11) recovered…. getting fully covered in upholstery or surviving the machine

I don’t think it has anything to do with European timezone and such.
It’s just, “it goes back four( a playword to replace “for”) seconds. When you are hungry, you go for second helpings, right? 😉

All of these are plays on words…

The 10th line, when hungry he goes back FOR seconds

The 11th line, he fell on an upholstery machine and was fully recovered (Covered as in covering upholstery)

thanks for brightening my day-you touched my funny bone! Laughter is still the best medicine for many of our ills. Pat
